thrifting and a fabulous find - part 3

my next door neighborhood in east point was having a yard sale last fall. i went late in the day when they were closing up and this chandelier was still among the cast offs laying on the lawn. yesssssss!!! seriously, how did no one see it's beauty? i don't usually care for brass, but it has an aged finished that fits perfectly in my dining room (probably because it had been hanging in one house for the past 80+ years). the best news of all is that it was only $1. the chandelier could not have been more perfect topped off with shades i found at lowes for $4 a piece. it is the centerpiece of my dining room, very large and commands attention - all for $25. now, that is a deal :)
